Skimmer seems clogged from stabalizer

Postby Amy » Sat 26 Apr, 2008 10:04

I think my skimmer is clogged from adding my stabalizer. I don't know how to fix or who I need to call - this is part the pump? I just cleaned my filters and cell two weeks ago, the cell light is on again. I took my water to be tested and it isn't showing any stabalizer... I don't know who I should call to repair or if it's something I can do, its starting to get the yellow mustard in the pool and to shock and stop yellow without fixing the issue seems silly!! Help! Please!

When doing this so granular conditioner can disolve faster in filter you can not just dump & go. You have to pour very little at a time & never more than 3-4lbs.

So where is it clogged? Do you know? can you see it?

If it's clogged in pump you need to unbolt motor from pump & pull it out which will allow you to clean out compacted conditioner stuck in impeller area. If conditioner is cement in pump basket empty it onto newspaper.

There is a easier conditioner to use made by Hasa & it's like babypowder which you can disolve into bucket of water & add.
